Michelin North America Inc. has turned the Michelin Truck Tire Technical Data Book into an online, on-the-go tool with the release of the Michelin MyTechXpert app.
The app gives tire dealers and fleet operators quick access to tire performance analysis on wear and tire and data to help them select the best tire for the application.
“The Michelin MyTechXpert app is something that our fleet and dealer partners have been asking for, and we have been listening,” said Pierluigi Cumo, vice president of B2B marketing for Michelin North America Inc. “This new mobile truck tire technical database will allow our customers to quickly find detailed information on each tire, locate part numbers and make the most informed decision for their needs.”
Michelin says one of the app's best features is its search feature, which can be used for specific tires, or even common characteristics. It also features tire diagnosis images and technical expertise from the Michelin Service Manual, plus training videos from certified Michelin field engineers.
“Technicians can work faster with quick access to specific information for tires, maintenance activities and expert advice from Michelin,” Cumo said. “With the app, they can run initial diagnostics on tire wear, get technical advice and optimize tire costs while reducing the fleet’s environmental footprint.”
The Michelin MyTechXpert app is compatible with Android and iOS devices and is free to download from Google Play or the App Store. The app allows both sales representatives and owners to select the best-suited tire for their fleets.
